Recently renovated Silverline Center continues to draw tenants to Tysons

The restaurant’s proprietors signed a lease for 6,395 square feet of space. TenPenh, named for its original location at 10th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, is scheduled to open next year.

In addition to its own sustainably grown and produced coffee, Bourbon Coffee will offer a breakfast and lunch menu. It began operations in Kigali, Rwanda, in 2007, and has expanded to eight locations across Rwanda and the U.S. The Tysons space is its ninth location.
